    I wonder, is there any chance of seeing KH games on the Nintendo Switch?

    There's a bit of a chance, I wouldnt hold my breath for the release of it, but Square just said to days ago they are focusing on the switch, and they are thinking of old titles as well as new titles to bring to the switch. So that means we are definitely getting ports of older games, but who knows how the licensing with KH works. They have been on nintendo systems before but never any main title games.

    Square Enix could port the PS3 version to the Switch and I'd support it but Squeenix doesn't seem to be too interested releasing KH on a Nintendo system lately. Hopefully that'll change.

    Seeing how KH series have appeared on nintendo consoles (gba, nds, 3ds...), it may happen some day (pls Square)

    Inside your miiind, and poof.
    Square Enix now only makes KH games for the Playstation consoles due to players wanting it all to be on one unified platform (wtf is wrong with you people). But now with KH3 they're going to release it on the Xbox One too, don't know if they're gonna do it for the Switch. A lot of optimization would be required to port KH3 or any new KH game to the Switch, so with all that I think it's highly unlikely. It is possible a new KH game just for the Switch could release (like for the 3DS Dream Drop Distance), but that depends on how well Square's other games sell on the Switch before that.

    Tbh, i dont think they will port 1.5+2.5 to switch. But it would be awesome if they did.

    KH3 would probably have to be downgraded tremendously to actually work on the Switch.

    Yep. Maybe Square will get around releasing KH1.5+2.5 ReMIX or not.

    Would literally kill for that 1.5 + 2.5 remix to come to Switch.
    Nintendo got CoM, 368/2 Days, Re:Coded and DDD. There's a chance we might get 3 and the Remixes but as DeathBot said, I really wouldn't hold my breath for it. Hopefully Square will think something along the lines of "hey, we've got this game we've re-released so many times it's not funny, why not put it on a Nintendo console?"

    What would be more realistic would be a Sleeping Dogs port tbh, the original version would be easy to port onto the Switch.

    The switch DOES support Unreal Engine 4. Which is what they are building KH3 with.

    How butchered would KH3 have to be in order to run on the Switch? :unsure:

    Snake Pass uses Unreal Engine 4 and runs rather well on the Switch.

    Square Enix is releasing a game on the Switch later this month but it's not what most of you are probably hoping...

    Aye, it will be a challenge. But the tech to do it is there.

    Well, given how easy it is to optimize for UE4? Maybe not so much. Just some graphical drops, but nothing drastic.
